Add a Marked Route

A marked route is mostly used from the last control to the finish. Sometimes you may also have marked routes between controls (e.g. to cross a bridge or a dangerous area).

The marked route treated in this article applies to a route the runner must use. If you want to add a marked route just for information, but which is not part of the course you have to add it as a different object, which is described at the end of this aticle.

To create a marked route:

  1. Select the Markedroute.gif Marked Route symbol in the symbol box.
  2. Select a drawing tool (e.g. the curve tool).
  3. Draw the marked route in the direction in which the competitors are running (e.g. from the last control to the finish).
  4. Now the Course Object dialog box appears. It proposes a code. Enter a different code if desired (See below if this dialog box does not appear automatically).
  5. Click the OK button.
  6. The Marked Route object is shown on the map.
  7. You can now Add the Course Object to Courses.
  8. Select it to get some editing options. Visit the Edit Course Setting Objects page to get more information.

Check Funnel tapes in the Course Object Box when a marked route is selected to get the corresponding symbol on the control description.

The marked route defines how the finish is displayed on the control description. Marked routes can be drawn anywhere in the course, but note that they must be drawn in the direction in which the competitors are running, otherwise the course will not be drawn correctly.

Hint.jpg Marked routes must be added to each course like controls and the finish.

If the Course Object dialog box does not appear automatically:

  1. Right-click on the Markedroute.gif Marked Route symbol in the symbol box.
  2. Choose the Edit command from the context menu. The Line Symbol dialog box appears.
  3. In the Main Line tab activate the Course setting symbol: Marked route option.
  4. Click the OK button and draw the marked route again.

If you want to create a marked route without influence on the course:

  1. Right-click on the Markedroute.gif Marked Route symbol in the symbol box.
  2. Choose the Duplicate command.
  3. Right-click on the duplicated Markedroute.gif Marked Route symbol in the symbol box.
  4. Choose the Edit command from the context menu. The Line Symbol dialog box appears.
  5. In the Main Line tab disable the Course setting symbol: Marked route option.
  6. Click the OK button. Now you can draw a marked route which cannot be added to a course and is always visible.

Adding a Control Description

To print a control description together with the course you have to place a control description object. This object is a placeholder and marks the upper left corner of the control description.

  1. Select the control description symbol Cdsymbol.gif in the symbol box.
  2. Select any drawing mode.
  3. Place an object to mark the upper left corner of the control description.
  4. The Course Object dialog box appears. You can leave the preset values unchanged and click OK.
  5. If you want a text description, activate Text description in the course setting panel on the right side of the screen.

If the background map should be masked below the text description, activate the option White background in Options from the Course menu.

Adding a Course Title

Normally you add the title of the course. OCAD allows you to use the course name, a list of all classes using that course or both as a course title.

To add a course title, you place a text object which is a placeholder for the course title. This text object will be filled with the course title in each course.

  1. Select the course title symbol Coursetitle.gif in the symbol box.
  2. Select any drawing mode.
  3. Click on the map to place the text object.
  4. The Course Object dialog box appears automatically. If it does not appear automatically, you must make a modification to the course title symbol. See below.
  5. Click OK.
  6. The object appears with the text "Course". This text will be replaced with the course title in each course.


Define what is in the course title

You can choose whether the course title should contain the course name or a list of classes or both.

  1. Choose Options from the Course menu. The Course Options dialog box appears.
  2. Select the desired course title in the Course title box.

The same course title will also appear in controls descriptions.


If the Course Object dialog box does not appear automatically

  1. Right-click on the course title symbol Coursetitle.gif in the symbol box.
  2. From the context menu select Edit. The Text Symbol dialog box appears.
  3. In the General page activate Course setting symbol and select Course title.
  4. Click OK.

Adding Start Numbers for Relay Courses

For relay courses, you must add the start number to the course in order to give the right map to the right runner. To add a start number, you place a text object which is a placeholder for the start number. This text object will be filled with the start number in each course.

  1. Select the start number symbol Startnumber.gif in the symbol box.
  2. Select any drawing mode.
  3. Click on the map to place the text object.
  4. The Course Object dialog box appears automatically. If it does not appear automatically, you must make a modification to the start number symbol. See below.
  5. Click OK.
  6. The object appears with the text "51.1". This text will be replaced with the start number on each map.


If the Course Object dialog box does not appear automatically

  1. Right-click on the start number symbol Startnumber.gif in the symbol box.
  2. From the context menu select Edit. The Text Symbol dialog box appears.
  3. In the General page activate Course setting symbol and select Start number (relay).
  4. Click OK.


Adding Other Objects

In a course overprint you may want to add other objects like:

  • event title
  • logo of the event
  • date of the event
  • corrections to the map
  • other information relevant to the runner

The standard symbol set contains a symbol for the event title Event.gif. For other objects you may have to create your own symbols. It is important for these symbols that the option course setting symbol is switched off. The option course setting symbol must be used only for objects which belong to a course like controls, the marked route from the last control to the finish or the course title.

Example If there is a marked route for children which you would like to appear on all other courses (just for information) you proceed as follows:

  1. Right-click the marked route symbol Markedroute.gif in the symbol box.
  2. Choose Duplicate from the context menu. A new symbol with the same icon is created.
  3. Right-click the new symbol.
  4. Choose Edit from the context menu.
  5. Deactivate Course setting symbol: Marked route.

Use this new symbol to draw the children course.


Course Object Dialog Box

This dialog box appears after placing a course object or clicking the Change code button in the course setting box on the right side of the screen.

In this dialog box you can create or edit the code of a course object.

Code OCAD proposes the next free number for the controls and a letter plus a number for other course objects. It is recommended to use this convention.

First Free Code button Click this button to get the first free code available.

For control objects OCAD first searches for the lowest number you have defined and assumes that you want to use only numbers above this number. If you want to use a lower number, you must enter it on the keyboard.

Next Free Code button Click this button to get the next free code available.
